Randolph and the Brewers

Apparently Willie Randolph interviewed with the Brewers yesterday. Strikes me as a bad fit. Wasn't the knock on Randolph in New York the same as the knock on Ned Yost? That he was too placid -- even as the wheels were falling off -- and was seen as unable to motivate his players?

I don't suggest interviewing Larry Bowa or anything, but wouldn't the Brewers do better by getting someone with a little more, I dunno, fire?

Slow Hand Willie to the Brewers could be another episode of Bad Idea Jeans.

That may be, anon, but there was a lot more smoke to this than those typical token interviews we've come to expect. Melvin has been talking up Randolph more than you usually see in these situations. There was talk of bringing in Willie back when Yost was hired too.

Does that mean anything? Probably not. Indeed, maybe it only means that teams are getting "smarter" about cloaking thier meaningless token interviews. But I don't know.

Wasn't Randolph a Brewers coach for a few years?

I don't think he was a coach there, but I do think he played there at some point.
